Strawberry Summer Wedding {Inspiration}

Legend has it that, if you share a double strawberry with someone, you’re destined to fall in love. This summer fruit’s connection to happily ever after doesn’t end there! Due to its color and heart shape, the strawberry is a symbol of Venus, the Roman goddess of love. Now, whether that connection has something to do with the belief amongst many cultures that strawberries should be served to newlyweds because of the passion they inspire, we’ll never know.

But what we do know is that this little berry is a charming wedding day element. Because, above all, the strawberry inspires a sense of sunny summer days, all things delicious, and pretty back gardens.

Weave them into your summer wedding starting with a palette of reds, pinks, lush greens and soft neutrals layered with strawberry details (they’re amazing in a bouquet, and a delicious favor). As far as style goes, you can go rustic chic (think gingham, family style seating, refined details), modern, traditional…pick any direction!

Ruby Red Summer Wedding

Vivid sunsets, strawberries, and roses…red captures so much about mid-summer that it is no wonder the ruby is July’s birthstone! Though stunning on its own, this passionate hue becomes particularly beguiling when partnered with blush.

Ruby red’s vibrancy and passion is a gorgeous contrast to the sweetness of pale pink, and offers an eloquent way to incorporate seasonal elements. Taken a bit further, the play of bold and soft can be woven throughout – a flowing, blush gown paired with bright shoes, a softly frosted caked topped with berries.

If pale pink is not your thing, ruby is also fabulous paired with turquoise. But however you slice it, this is one hue that’s fabulous for summer weddings!
